Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Costa Rica
This week is Semana Santa "Holy Week". We are enjoying a few days off from our language studies as the school is closed all week. This is an important week for us to remember, as Christians, the price that Jesus paid for us on the cross. Sadly, many people get caught up in this week's ceremonies and processions, but don't focus on the true meaning. That's true here in Costa Rica, but it's also true in the states - even with Christians.
As we have shared with some people here: "!El es resucitado! !El es resucitado en verdad!" or in English "He is risen! He is risen indeed!" Let that be your focus!
